Participants are encouraged to develop a key message or slogan, use humor, and get creative while emphasizing ways to protect themselves and their co-workers from being hurt on the job.

Oregon high school students are invited to enter "Speak up. Work safe." annual video contest now under way in the state, a contest trying to raise awareness about safety on the job for young workers. The top three entries will win cash prizes ranging from $300 to $500 and a matching amount for the wining students' schools.

Participants are encouraged to develop a key message or slogan, use humor, and get creative while emphasizing ways to protect themselves and their co-workers from being hurt on the job.
